Our Mission

At VDB Cycling, our mission is to empower cyclists of all levels to reach their full potential by enhancing their fitness and performance through personalized coaching and leveraging cutting-edge training software technologies.


We believe in a comprehensive approach that addresses both physical prowess and mental resilience, ensuring a well-rounded development for our athletes. Our commitment lies in delivering a distinctive and meticulously structured experience that fosters growth, strength, and endurance on the bike.

Our consultations are conducted individually via virtual meetings, allowing us to deeply understand your cycling ambitions and tailor our coaching precisely to your needs and goals. As we nurture lasting relationships with our members, some of whom have been with us for years, we aim to be not just a coaching service but a trusted partner in your cycling journey.
